7 Essentials To Fatherhood


Now that you and your partner have come to an agreement that it is time for you to get your vasectomy reversal doctor New York services scheduled, it’s time to start thinking about the reality of the situation. Fatherhood is tricky business. There’s nothing in life that really prepares you fully for how to raise an entirely clueless infant that did not even exist a few months prior. It’s a strange feeling taking up that responsibility. But it’s also a wonderful one that should be taken in stride. But fatherhood doesn’t come for free. It’s time to go shopping. Here’s what you need to buy before that baby is born.

Wipes: Lots and lots of wipes. Huggies’ Sensitive Wipes is a good bet. Remember, these little guys are really little, which means they digest a lot faster than you do. Keeping your baby boy or girl healthy entails keeping him or her clean. Never forget that.

Diaper Bag: Well it’s certainly not the manliest thing one can carry on his person, but then again, who really cares. Your concern in this phase of life is getting your kid to adolescence in one piece. That means having diapers available at all times. That also means having something to transport said diapers.

Diapers: Speaking of which, though we’re sure you’ve thought of this already, just as a reminder, you’ve got to get some diapers to put in the bag. And by some, we mean lots. Buy in bulk and save yourself the trouble. You’ve got several years of diaper buying ahead of you. Pampers’ Swaddlers will do the trick.

Rectal Thermometer: A newborn baby does not have the same defenses as an adult. You are your child’s defenses. That means you are the one that has to monitor your kid’s health at all times. That means keeping an eye on his or her temperature, especially if you notice any abnormal behavior or symptoms.

Vaseline: No one likes having a thermometer inserted rectally, whether you’re a baby or not. You’ll have to make the insertion a little smoother with some lubricant. The Vaseline will also help with recovery from circumcision if you have a boy.

PJs: You don’t need to spend a fortune on these. Your kid is going to grow like crazy and those pajamas you buy will be rendered useless in no time. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have to buy them. Get something comfy and preferably stretchy to make them last a bit longer when your kid starts getting bigger.

Pacifiers: Be careful with these. You’ll be tempted to rely on the bottle or the pacifier whenever you want to get a good night’s rest. But these can be overused pretty easily. Your child should be off the bottle by the time he or she goes to his or her first dentist appointment. Oral fixations can cause some lasting damage to your kid’s dental hygiene if you’re not careful.

Now that you’ve filled up your shopping cart, what’s left is scheduling the actual appointment. Call Harry Fisch’s office now at 212-079-0800 to get your vasectomy reversal doctor New York services.
